Solution for Online Shoe Retail
Consumers are still hesitant about buying shoes online because they are not sure the shoes will really fit without trying them on. A number of companies have started online shoe sales, but with very limited success.
Significantly, the return rate for online and mail order shoes is over 30%.
No foot-scanning needed!
Make your customers feel confident that they can buy shoes online!
Decrease customer returns and increase your conversion rate and online shoe sales!
Different sizing systems (EU, UK, US, Mondopoint, etc.) make it very difficult for a customer to choose the best size of a particular model. Just because a model size US 10 from one manufacturer fits well, it does not mean that the same size
from a different manufacturer will fit. Frequently, even two models of the same size, from the same manufacturer, differ significantly.
The new UCS technology increases customer's confidence that shoes can be bought online without previously trying them on.
Solution for In-store Shoe Retail
Parents can become desperate when buying children's footwear. They would like their children to wear healthy shoes, but sales assistants do not have the tools to provide really good advice. Not surprisingly, researchers warn that more than 80% of children wear inappropriately sized shoes.
Outperform your competition and help parents buy properly fitting shoes for their children!
NEW technologies have enabled the development of a unique worldwide UCS Children's SafeSize Recommender.
It is not only based on foot length and width, but also on other foot dimensions, toe shape, foot growth and most importantly - the inner shoe dimensions. Using the Children's SafeSize Recommender, you will provide parents with accurate information about the right shoe size for the selected model considering all relevant factors, including projected growth of the child's foot over the coming months.

How does it work?
A shoe scanner measures the inner dimensions of all the shoes (only models not yet in the UCS database).
When a customer visits the store for the first time, both of his or her feet are measured with a foot scanner. After measurement, the scanner prints out the ticket with an unique number assigned to a customer, containing all relevant data about the feet.
After the customer's feet are scanned he or she chooses the preferred model. This can be done on the touch screen monitor of the foot scanner, at the shoe shelf using a tablet computer or smart phone, or just by showing the store assistant the desired styles.
The size recommendation is different for children and adults. At children recommendation, respecting the growth of the feet is essential, so the feet must be scanned and then the recommendation is given. How it is done, please refer to the tab "Solution for In-store Shoe Retail".
The recommendation for the adults is given as a straight size on the smart phone or the tablet PC of the sales assistant. If more info is needed about the recommendation, it is given the same way as in the online presentation - please refer to the tab "Solution for Online Shoe Retail".
Next In-store Purchase
No scanning is needed at the next purchase. This is where the SafeSize code comes into play. Customers code contains all relevant data about his feet and previous footwear purchases. It is automatically stored and is used to make further purchases, in stores or online, easier. If a retailer has its own card (loyalty card, club card etc.) the SafeSize code can be incorporated into it.
Most retailers who successfully sell in traditional stores have also started online sales. Here the magic of our SafeSize system comes into effect! Once a customer has his SafeSize code he can also buy online - without even trying the shoes on!
